Meet, Catie Conrad - a typical Christian tween with, oh, the weight of the world on her shoulders. And if it isn’t bad enough that no one seems to understand the social pressures of being the greatest at everything, donning the latest fashions, and carrying the trendiest technology, Catie’s dad is about to uproot her and her family to an Indian reservation during spring break for his job. Throw in a school dance, a major art contest, and an arch nemesis known only as Miranda Maroni and there’s bound to be an epic meltdown of biblical proportions. Or, maybe not…
Finally a voice in the tween genre that is relatable and no less humorous for girls aged 9 to 12 by author Angie Spady. The first book in a new series titled Desperate Diva Diaries, Catie Conrad: Faith, Friendship, and Fashion Disasters chronicles both the small triumphs and general mishaps of sixth-grade Christian want-to-be diva, Catie Conrad. While her Christian journalist father is often a co-conspirator to making Catie’s life interesting with mission trips and church projects, Catie never ceases to realize God’s hand in all situations.
Well Well Well, What can I say? Not only did I love this book I let one of my granddaughters check it out and she absolutely fell in love with the whole book.
The graphics are AMAZING! Catie Conrad is a true role model. The way she plays things out and her way of trying to do the right thing even thou she doesn't want to.
I will not give away any thing but I would and do recommend this book and author Angie Spady to all who have the tween age girls. Not only to parents but to educators in the church who work with this wonderful age group. These young ladies need to be taught that God is there for them in any thing they deal with.
This is the first book in a new series titled a very long title. But please check them out and give me some feed back on what you think.
For the reasons above I will be giving this book and author ( if I could I would give them an even higher rating) a Breath of Life rating of:
Five Clock Rating!!
